The 2014 Fall Lecture Series: An Introduction to Thermoplastic Piping System DesignTwo Sessions Tuesday, October 7, 2014 & Tuesday, October 14, 2014Registration & Networking – 6:00 PM to 6:30 PMDinner - 6:30 to 7:30 PMLectures - 7:30 PM – 9:00 PMAbout the Lecture Series: Metal-based piping systems have been in use for decades. Engineers of all stripes have been exposed in some part to projects involving the design of a piping system, whether it is to transfer chemicals from tank to tank, or to transfer potable water from reservoir to tap. Though ubiquitous, metal-based piping systems have limitations that can be addressed with alternate materials of construction, such as thermoplastics. However, when engineering thermoplastic piping systems, one must have not only a working knowledge of piping design, but also an awareness of the unique properties offered by thermoplastics, namely:• Pressure ratings (including temperature affects)• Water hammer tolerability• Friction loss characteristics, and• Dimensional and weight data
This seminar series will provide background information that will familiarize the attendee with these properties and enable more effective thermoplastic piping system designs.
Session 1 of this seminar series will introduce the attendees to the uses of thermoplastic piping systems, including their unique properties and general design considerations.
Session 2 of this seminar series will introduce attendees to the usefulness of double-walled thermoplastic piping systems for complying with U.S. EPA requirements for underground piping systems, and/or piping systems conveying hazardous wastes or mixtures thereof, (as listed or identified in Subtitle C of the Solid Waste DisposalAct).
Session 1 Details: This session will provide an introduction to thermoplastic piping materials. This seminar will go over material properties, chemical compatibility, pressure capabilities, and burning characteristics. This seminar will also discuss best practices for design and installation.• Physical and chemical properties of thermoplastic materials• Design Considerations - including thermal expansion and contraction, and support spacing, and how to compensate.• Installation considerations – including, Joining methods, best practice, and do’s and don’ts• Applications• Applicable codes and standards_____________________________________________
